So I introduced some friends of mine, Legacy and Z-man, to Brikwars about a year ago. Yesterday was the first time we were able to play Brikwars that wasn't on a table when we ran into each other in passing. I think it's time we started a club.
Legacy made a multiple level battlefield that I think is rather epic. For reference, five feet is about the height of half of that mirror, I think.
This was a rather short battle with a classic game ender feat when we ran out of time. Enjoy!
Heros were declared and rolls taken for first turn. Z-man, having the smallest army, got two heros, one of which could use his feat at any time during anyone's turn. Darth got top roll and decided that the turn order would be Darth, Z-man, Legacy, and then Ross. (I think he was still mad at me for that last battle...)
Darth's forces move forward.
His Hailfire tank slides unchecked down the slope and fires six of its missiles at my front ranks, killing the squad of Red Ninjas and one trooper.
He successfully used a heroic feat of ROCK OUT, causing five of Legacy's troopers to turn to his side.
Z-man's Mecha moves up, firing grinding damage on Legacy's Crystal King. The Orange Anorak bounds towards a large source of energy. No one has shovels...
His solitary Ninja hoists itself down the back pillar. The rest of his forces wait for an opportunity to drop onto Darth's armies.
Z-man attempts a feat to make his catapult auto fire, but fails and stops the 'pult for this turn.
At this point, Darth got really wide-eyed. Legacy just threw one of the giant crystals down the ramp, crushing half of Darth's droids and sending the Acid Snake over the edge to the ramp below. That's a bit of a road-block...
Legacy then pulls a hugely overpowered damage roll with his droid tank and takes out the ramp under Z-man's mech.
Crush! Both the mech and Darth's hailfire tank go down.
Z-man attempts to pull a trump card. His Time Hero uses his feat to go back in time and prevent the droid tank from being built. Apparently he messed up though, because he disappears and the second ramp suddenly ceases existence. Both mecha and hailfire tank take double falling damage.
Legacy's Crystal King chucks his droid tank off the edge when Darth Brik makes a comment about 'maybe I should just turn all droids to my side next turn'. Better safe then sorry, I suppose. The tank disappears into the flash of a time paradox.
Legacy then easily slays the Rocked Out turncoats affected by Darth's feat.
Unfortunately, the overkill damage takes out the ramp under them.
My units move up. The FELC uses the wreckage as a bridge to the collapsed ramp.
The Dragon Rider flies up to the top level and spears Legacy's Hero's tank of explosives out of his hands, missing him.
My heroic feat was to attempt to give everyone in my army the Wall Climbing ability, kinda smart since they were stuck down a well. It failed and instead granted Z-man's forces with it.
Turn One Overwatch:
Darth starts off the second turn with a heroic feat, SONIC WAVE. It works and knocks down a huge amount of Legacy's units, pushing his Flame Mecha off the edge of the platform.
He then moves his units past the crystal and fires on Legacy's crate of explosives, causing a size 5 explosion that kills the Dragon Rider and the Shadow Warrior, Legacy's hero.
Legacy gets kinda mad at this and pulls his own feat...
You just got... skilleted
And that ends the battle. Prematurely, in my opinion, but Darth and I had to go. Next time will be different, and much more epic.
Post! How did you think it was? (BESIDES the shortness of the battle. I'm working on that.)
Also, what's the typical length of a four way brikwars battle with medium sized armies? I have no prior experience with this.
